Did Write To The Torture Society. No Help.
What about us survivors in foreign lands ?.
Seanie Morrison, 84 this August, ruptured spine no help from Caranua, nuff said.
All of these events only concern those in Ireland .the rest of us to these groups are Simply names and addresses on thier lists of those helped. .Its very insulting and abusive.When i learnt of events thay were over.and it was by newspapers or this site.After 20 years of this cruelty i dont believe that there will be any change.
More Often Than Not The Events Have Come And Gone. The Entrance Fee Is For Fund Raising?
Sounds Awful Seanie. Needing Urgent Surgery?
Pauline, Certainly Names And Addresses On A List Can Impress Anybody But Those On That List.
Hi All, why are caranua even interested in this future together they have done nothing to help us in the present. I had an email from them yesterday stating they are winding down and an last date for receiving invoices for what ever they want to give you if anything is 24th May. There is no future for survivors as the government want rid of us, my advice is to contact the future together email address and make your complaint if you can't attend or you live in another Country. And tell them the kind of future you want as a survivor!!!!! If anyone is going let me know and if I am able to attend I will definitely be there.

No Jack just painkillers.
I would like to say I am calling my memoir, (The Black Suitcase) hoping to have it published this year by Friesen Press.
